Japanese battleship Yamato under aerial attack. The battleship was the largest ever built at 73000 tons and carried 18 inch guns but at the time of its sinking it was part of a suicide fleet and on a suicide mission where the entire fleet was to run up on the beach and all the sailors were to attack American Marines on Okinawa. The fleet never even got close to its objective and was destroyed.
